Its sharpest passages ... exert the bracing, mouth-shuddering tang of neat ouzo: You know how it's going to taste, but it leaves you wincing anyway.

As stylized as Makridis' second feature is, it's grounded in recognizable behavior, and its sly, dry playfulness reverberates with fascinating questions about emotions and how we portray them.

By the end, Pity transcends its simplistic premise to become a cogent allegory for the perils of solipsism.

Markridis has structured Pity as a slow burn, and this works just fine even though he tips his hand early.

Pity is a dark comedy that becomes even funnier in its delivery thanks to a deadpan performance from Yannis Drakopoulos.

There's dark comedy, and then there's Efthimis Filippou.
